The Indian EV industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years. Initially, spearheaded by the electric three-wheelers, the industry is currently led by the electric two-wheelers, especially the electric scooters. However, drastically and rapidly evolving consumer preferences have forced EV manufacturers to think beyond electric scooters. This is why several EV makers are increasingly focusing on electric motorcycles.
In the last several months, several EV startups have introduced their exciting products in the Indian electric motorcycle segment. The number is set to rise significantly over the next few years. From Ola Electric to Tork Motors, several EV manufacturers have embarked on the journey of introducing new products and a large number of them are electric motorcycles.
